Hello Team Sats!!
We realize it's been a while since we've sent you all a mailer, so we thought we'd drop you a note to update you on all the exciting stuff that's going on at the minute, plus some of our plans for the rest of the year.
To start with, this week marks five years since our 'Headlines' tour in 2011. We can't believe how long ago that feels!! We had such a brilliant time on the road on that tour - some of you may remember it all being filmed for our 'What Goes On Tour' TV show that aired later in the year. Since the 'Headlines' tour, we've released another 3 albums, 11 singles and been on 2 arena tours - it's been an incredible rollercoaster, but we've loved every minute. Speaking of 'headlines' - despite what some of them might say, don't forget that even if we're taking some time out to try stuff out on our own, we will always be The Saturdays!!
That brings us to today's update...here's what we're each up to at the minute. VANESSA
Vanessa White has been busy over the last couple of months, working with the likes of Snakehips, Nick Brewer, Wretch 32 and Shakka on her R&B-tinged solo sound. Vanessa says "I love the music we made with the Sat's but it's so exciting to experiment with the 90's R&B sound I grew up with on my solo project. Team Sats have been so supportive which has been amazing!" Today she launches her debut EP 'Chapter One' which includes Don't Wanna Be Your Lover, Relationship Goals, Nostalgia and Lipstick Kisses ft Wretch 32 available on iTunes and Spotify now. She also headlines at Cargo on March 16th with advance tickets at £7 available at Ticketweb/Ticketmaster.UNA
